Once my bigger discount kicked in I headed for Teavana to buy a gift and this tea for myself. Of course, I had a salesperson who was just fine with giving me a tin without even asking and overpoured by half an ounce…but then this guy who works there who I actually like is all, uhh did you even show her the 8 oz tin? So instead of spending $17 on 4 oz I spent $24 on 8 oz and got a better looking tin. Jeez. Don’t worry I made it up to her by being super difficult upon checkout. (Not on purpose.)
So I had tasted this there and knew it was sweetened (hahaha never fear I bought my rock sugar at my own job) and obviously being like peppermint bark tea it’s fine by me. I’ve been hit hard by the peppermint chocolate bug…last Wednesday I ate two peppermint brownie cake pops AT WORK but I was there 8 hours so I don’t see a real problem, except for two days later I was eating peppermint bark and buying this. I told my manager about the awesome deal and she’s like why did you buy half a pound of tea at once. PEPPERMINT.
So I was trying to slightly hold off on drinking this but I can’t resist any longer, it has been way too long since my latest peppermint chocolate fix.
I was impressed how it didn’t at all taste like rooibos in store but I’m sure my own sugar tastes don’t match Teavana and at home I get a bit of it with just a couple little rocks but ughhh it actually tastes like white chocolate peppermint bark. I also left the room in the midst of drinking it and came back and it smelled SO GOOD.
I’d love to try this DavidsTea that’s similar but given I paid $3/oz $4.82/oz with shipping on top of that is rather high when I am quite content with this (but curious because cocomint cream was so good). Also yeah having half a pound of this…
I think I need another cup.
Also I can easily overlook the oily surface of this tea given there’s white chocolate pieces and let’s be honest, white chocolate’s pretty much oils…delicious oils.
